Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-03-08 22:55:25 UTC
Description of problem:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/messagebus checks for an existence of
/usr/bin/dbus-daemon-1 executatable.  The catch is that
dbus-0.31-1 package provides /usr/bin/dbus-daemon instead.
This means that postuninstall scriptlet from 0.23-4 fails,
new messagebus does not restart, and hal it out-to-lunch.

As an apparent side effect this quietly reconfigured my
display to some "generic 800x600".  Very nice!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 John (J5) Palmieri 2005-03-09 00:06:57 UTC
Fixed in dbus-0.31-2

Comment 2 John (J5) Palmieri 2005-03-09 00:08:26 UTC
btw hal and dbus don't have anything ot do with screen resolution.

Comment 3 Michal Jaegermann 2005-03-09 00:54:41 UTC
I am not sure what is a chain of dependencies but something
definitely caused 'system-config-display' to silently run and rewrite
/etc/X11/xorg.conf in time when 'messagebus' and 'haldaemon' services
were messed up.  It is hard to imagine what else could bring that.
Reboots with a sanity restored do not have such side-effects anymore.
